Studio Live’s application for a conditional use permit for its outdoor venue, the “Backyard,” has a few surrounding neighbors in an uproar.

Studio live is gearing up to get a conditional use permit for the Backyard, the outoor stage behind the venue. Last year Studio Live had temporary use permits for its two indoor venues. The stage plans to kick off the season with a Battle of the Bands performance by Sedona Red Rock High School students Saturday, April 27.According to neighbor Wendy Wizinowich, most of the neighbors have been very supportive of Studio Live and are happy for its success, having no problems with the music played inside the venue. But when the stage and entertainment moved outside, neighbors became concerned with parking and safety issues, and have been expressing upset over the noise.

“I am opposed to the granting of the permit,” Wizinowich said. “The noise is too loud and disrupts the tranquility and peace of the neighborhood. We have tolerated it occasionally, but 32 times over an eight-month period is too much. The neighborhood is very supportive of their success and what they are doing. We just want them to keep it inside.”

    Hmmmm. I GUESS if WE STILL had a CULTURAL PARK they could do it there. <br /><br />BUT nooooo. The restrictions became overwhelming, and then the developers wanted to change it into a "village".

    It's sad, to me, how much outdoor music is frowned upon here. It really draws people into businesses that normally may not have gone there. Being that the music is not being played in a bar, it encourages families with children to listen, dance and play. It embraces "community" in the truest sense.

    I'm sure they won't approve this message so you can read it because there's no such thing as free speech or freedom of expression in America anymore. This country has been over run by wealthy retirees that expect a slave class to service them while they wallow in misery and jealousy of those that have their youth. That's why they're going along with the plan to eliminate our rights, it provides them with entertainment on their way out. Keep watching TV America, nothing to see here! I am ashamed of the baby boomer generation. The most pathetic in American history. They take a lot of drugs and mess with the rest of us, nothing more. Can you say losers ladies and gentleman?

    One man's music is another man's noise.<br />This venture should be promoted in a commercial area...not close to people's homes.<br /><br />As for the right to free speech Tyler...how about someone else's right to come home and relax in peace and quiet after a hard day's work?
